Episode 3: Our Yorkshire Farm

Summary

All nine children return home for Christmas. Clemmy has her hands full nursing a premature calf, while Clive has fixed up an ancient contraption to cook the festive roast. When an owl is sighted in one of the barns, the family comes up with a plan to encourage more birds to roost there. Miles rigs up a night vision system to keep an eye on their guest, while Sidney traps pests to lure it out.

Review

It’s Christmas, and as snow dusts the Yorkshire Dales like icing sugar, the Owen family gathers for the celebrations.

Not that work on Ravenseat Farm ever stops, and everyone joins in to help to deliver a calf, named KitKat, which is nurtured and bottle fed by four-year-old Clemmy.

But there is a refreshing lack of sentimentality as mum Amanda explains that KitKat might not survive; “Sometimes, something dies and that’s all.” Later, she faces a difficult conversation with Clemmy.

It’s another charming episode featuring life high in the Dales, a life that can be short for animals, but fun in the fresh, chilly air for the kids.
